It had an awesome premise! Born to Kill by Erin Trejo [DNF Review]

It had an awesome premise! Born to Kill by Erin Trejo [DNF Review]

My thoughts are probably more on the unpopular side, but I was frustrated by this book. Born to Kill is my first Erin Trejo book and it really put me off. First, I liked the premise – dark romance, unrequited romance, Mafia. I was seriously excited to start reading this book. Unfortunately, I made it to 50%ish before I had to mark it as a DNF. Before I delve into the negatives, I have to say that I liked the danger surrounding the whole story. I liked how Trejo set up the atmosphere of the book with the first few […]

Oh, the banter! Say No to the Duke by Eloisa James [ARC Review + Giveaway]

Oh, the banter! Say No to the Duke by Eloisa James [ARC Review + Giveaway]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   Well, well, well! This was a surprise! Say No to the Duke really made me grin and of course, the feels! This is the first book that I read in The Wildes of Lidow Castle series because I had a hard time getting into the first book, Wilde in Love. Anyway, I just jumped into the middle of the series and I WILL finally be reading the first three books! As I’ve said, I am a […]

Enemies to Lovers + Food! The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson [Book Review]

Enemies to Lovers + Food! The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson [Book Review]

  I got The Opposite of You for free when it was on sale and I read it on a whim. WOW! I was delightfully surprised! The Opposite of You has a heroine who is starting her own food truck parked across a 5-star restaurant featuring a Michelin starred chef! So, YES there is food, LOTS OF FOOD! I live in Los Angeles and food trucks are very popular here and I have tried a bunch of them, so reading about them is the cherry on top! When I started reading The Opposite of You, I really didn’t know what to expect. But I just […]

This book brought me to tears! Another Sky by Jayne Frost [ARC Review]

This book brought me to tears! Another Sky by Jayne Frost [ARC Review]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   Another Sky by Jayne Frost surprised me in a lot of ways. I was not expecting this book at all. It’s an amazingly written book about struggle, depression, and dealing with loss. I was reading part of this book on the plane and I was brought to tears! You should definitely have tissues ready for this book! In Another Sky, both the hero and heroine are damaged – but both are also at a […]

I am addicted to this world! Fated by Rebecca Zanetti [Book Review]

I am addicted to this world! Fated by Rebecca Zanetti [Book Review]

  WOW, I can’t believe the awesomeness of Fated by Rebecca Zanetti! Thank you so much to Teresa @reads_romance and Romance Reader for recommending this series! I easily get overwhelmed by really long series, but I just had to dive in! I will try to read the books in order! I’m not really into paranormal and to be honest, it’s a hard genre for me to get into. Well, I got hooked by this series and I just can’t wait to continue reading the series! Fated really captured my attention from page 1. That opening scene alone was a little bit scary […]

The Epilogue Saved this Book! The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

The Epilogue Saved this Book! The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

  I’ve seen The Unhoneymooners on Bookstagram a lot and I finally got the chance to listen to the audiobook! Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed until I listened to the epilogue! Unfortunately, the epilogue can’t save the book for me. Yes, I have mixed feelings with this book! The Unhoneymooners is an enemies-to-lovers romance. And while that is one of my favorite tropes and I liked Olive and Ethan’s banter and arguments, and yes, I liked the first part of the book. I was very disappointed by the hero, Ethan. I felt that he was spineless and I couldn’t […]

We Seriously Need a Clown in Our Life! Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey [ARC Review]

We Seriously Need a Clown in Our Life! Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey [ARC Review]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   I’m kicking myself for not starting Fix Her Up right away because this book is absolutely glorious! Picture a birthday clown heroine and a retired baseball player with a touch of hate-to-love and you have this AMAZING book! I have to tell you that I had second thoughts mainly because of the cover. The cover screams women’s fiction or at least something that isn’t too steamy. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised that this book has the […]

Unbroken by Jay Crownover [ARC Review + Excerpt]

Unbroken by Jay Crownover [ARC Review + Excerpt]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Don’t want to read the excerpt?  Click to jump to the Review? “This the one, Ms. Priss?” I turned in a circle, hating how restrictive and stiff the refined suit felt. There would be no staying on the horse for eight seconds in something like this. I doubted I could even bend over and pull my boots on in this getup. I failed to see how being dressed like I was going to […]

Insta-lust? The Lying Hours by Sara Ney [ARC Review]

Insta-lust? The Lying Hours by Sara Ney [ARC Review]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   I can’t tell you how much I LOVE the Douchebag series! I’ve only read the first two books, but the characters have captured my heart! I was really excited to find out that there will be a 5th Douchebag book and I could not wait to read it! I probably shouldn’t have gotten my hopes up to much because I kinda feel so-so about Abe and Sky’s book The Lying Hours. Not […]
